About this raicilla
La Venenosa Raicilla Sur was produced by Maestro Tabernero Don Macario Partida in the village of Zapotitlan de Vadillo at approximately 1,200 metres above sea level. The agave used is a type of Agave angustifolia known locally as Lineño, which is harvested after seven years. This single release of the La Venenosa red label bottle was produced by the Partida family, better known for their family brand Chacolo. Later editions of the red label were produced by Arturo Campos.
La Venenosa Raicilla
Raicilla has been produced for over 500 years in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Mexico. Jalisco offers a plethora of agave species, second only to Oaxaca, however the Tequila made in Jalisco can only be made with the blue agave. Raicilla from Jalisco can be made with many different types of agave that are scattered across the landscape. These, along with great diversity in terroir, equipment and techniques, give Raicilla an amazing spectrum of flavor and history.
La Venenosa Raicilla range was created by Chef Esteban Morales to bring these hidden jewels to the global market. Esteban traversed the state in search of the best producers in each region. Every one of these Raicilla expressions is unique; created by different Maestro Taberneros in distinct regions, from different species of agave using diverse techniques, the individual results are astounding. Due to the relatively raw nature of Raicilla production, the ABV of each La Venenosa may vary slightly by batch.
